A sweet movie that touches hearts of people who like to dream
22 September 2005 | by (Tübingen, Germany) – See all my reviews

As French movie makers really don't need US movies to copy their stories, this movie doesn't just reflect one parent-kid-relation, which might be the most wanted and most treated subject of US movies (which therefore I find boring so I don't watch them if not, sometimes, for the actors/actresses involved) ... This brilliant movie is a story about the sweetness of childhood, against and through all bad that might interfere from the world of adults. Children's life in fact can, or should, be as serious as a game, as most adults forget once they passed the line to adultness. Pascal Thomas created a sweet fairy tale about a happy summer's day, combining the convincing play of Vincent Lindon, Alessandra Martines and more great french actors with the beautiful site of Nantes, introducing great acting talent Victoria Lafaurie and other promising young actresses. This is a movie that will touch all those who'd like to dream about a life far from responsibilities as we had (or should have had) as children.
